Of ingenious construction and made from highly polished chrome, four vertical tubes are radially projected from a central mounting tube forming a cluster of 9 electric bulbs in differing positions projecting light beams across a room through cut away slots.

Angelo Gaetano Sciolari is a highly creative Italian designer and entrepreneur. He has made a considerable contribution to the success of Italian design around the world particularly in the United States. During his career, he designed incredible and beautiful lights such as the ‘Mod A5011’ hanging lamp (circa 1950), the ‘4079’ floor lamp (1965), and the Cubic chandelier (the 1970s).
Angelo Gaetano Sciolari was born in 1927 in Italy and after he graduated in architecture, the young man came back to his first passion: cinema and filmmaking.
